How does it work?
We love what we do and know the idea of a specialized kids space designer is a bit unusual. Therefore, we keep it simple. You can hire us for a little or a lot. You can treat our list of services as an ala cart menu; picking and choosing what areas you would like help with or you can have us tackle the entire project from start to finish. Our studio can come up with the ideas or we can work with yours. We'd be happy to elaborate, feel free to give us a call or drop us an email.
We are working with a designer on our non-children's spaces, can you collaborate with them?
Yes, we work with other designers all the time. We hope they find value in working with a children's space specific designer to broaden their product, trend and industry vocabulary.
Will you build something for us?
Yes. If you need a special creation for your space, let us help you. If you are short on ideas let us daydream for you. We have a multi-talented studio ready to help.
Can I solicit your help as an industry expert?
Yes, I'm happy to help with media interviews, blog contributions, product reviews, guest speaking or other industry related happenings. I'm available for kid's design seminars or classes for child based businesses and mommy groups.
This all sounds wonderful but I have more questions?
We'd be happy to chat with you by phone or email, just reach out. If you've run out of questions, here's some random ones......
Coffee? Yes, cream and sugar
Kids? Yep, two. A son and a daughter.
Cup 1/2 Full or Empty? Who drank the other half?
Favorite Color? Green
Do these jeans make me look fat? No, not at all.
What if I don't know what I need?
No worries, you are not alone. Kids spaces are a specialty that even traditional whole house designers don't feel comfortable in tackling. We'd be happy to discuss with you or your interior designer our range of services and which might suit your needs best. We also offer free estimates, initial consultations and portfolio viewings, in the Portland metropolitan area of Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington. For our out-of-town clients we can discuss travel or e-consultations.
How much does it cost?
As you can imagine, we do all kinds of things, everything from the expected to the unique. It's kind of hard to come up with a generic price that covers all situations. We can operate like a traditional designer hired by the hour(s) or give you estimates for pricing that covers time and materials.
Consultation, design and art services - 125.00 per hour, 4 hr. minimum locally, 8 hrs. remote/travel minimum.
Studio fabrication and shop time - 85.00 per hour + materials. Rates are discounted on larger projects.
Projects beyond 2, 5 and 15 days will reflect a discounted rate.
Are you open to travel?
Certainly. We'd have to discuss the details and schedule.
I don't see anything on your site that looks like what we want, can we see more?
The internet is a great place to browse, but it's impractical to flood our site with too much. We also have to somewhat protect our ideas. The rooms and designs featured on our site have compelling reasons why they're featured and do not represent all that we can do. We've helped hundreds of families and worked on an amazing array of projects with various artistic styles and decor principles. We can show you examples of our work to help you decide or excite you with our creative ideas that may go beyond what your are initially thinking.
